Don't have a lot of space, but still wondering how to get a full-fledged vegetable garden growing in the city?

For some inspiration, Mike Mennono says, take a walk through the Berkeley Community Gardens near Boston's Chinatown.

Mennono is the man behind The Naked Gardner Blog. He's also board president of the Fenway Garden Society.

Radio Boston's Meghna Chakrabarti recently met up with Mennono and his friend Min Chen to find out how, using rusty old bed frames and baby gates, Boston's Chinese gardeners have mastered the art of gardening up.


Just what do gourds hoisted on high with panty hose look like? Check out Mike Menonno's The Naked Gardner Blog for more pictures of the vertical gardens.
